Good Friend Bad Friend...You decided?
Someone once told me that friends are like stars and although you can't always see them, you can be sure they're always there for you.
Like most of you I have a lot of friends, but only a handful I would call real friends. The one’s you know you could call in the middle of the night, the one’s you could trust with your deepest darkest secrets and the one’s that would listen to you moan for hours on end and then turn around and just give you a massive hug to make you feel loved.
I have the most amazing friends in the whole wide world, they make me smile every time they text, call, facebook me or even tweet me. I even have friends I haven’t met yet, but I know that when I do, it will be like we have been friends forever.
My oldest friends are the ones I love the most:
My little sister Hannah is one of my closest friends. She is godmother to my youngest two babies, we laugh, we cry and we had our baby boys within two weeks of each other.
My tiniest sister Kate, she is going to be godmother to my youngest baby monster, she is like my very own daughter (my mum had her when I was 15) she is always around when I need her.
My little cousin Netty, she is amazing, she gives the best advice and is always around to make me chuckle.
My oldest friend Poe, she has an amazing knack of making me smile, we have shared some fun times and sad times but I always know she is there for me when I need her and vice versa.
My oldest friend Lou, we used to get into trouble together. Sharing chocolate on the bus on the way to school and being friends from the age of 4 I think that makes us best friends.
I suppose we have lot to thank modern technology for, before Facebook, twitter, Bebo and My Space where did those people we went to school with go? Family members we lost and ex boyfriends we forgotten about.
I personally have to thank Facebook for:
Michelle Henderson , Mel Simmons, Kerry Hoy, Fiona Robertson, Caroline Johnstone, Anita Bell, Ali Wild, Jo Nulty, Jo Ward, Kerry Smith, Sarah Williams, Sarah Letman, Gia Henry, Carrie Meaden to name and shame just a few. These ladies are my lifeline on Facebook, they keep me sane and their lovely messages make me smile. I went to school with all of them, we were never best friends at school but I have met them all.
I also have to thank facebook for my gorgeous extended family, from little cousins Hannah, Kirsty ad Harry to more cousins Ian, Aimee and Lyndsay. I may not have met any of them yet but I love them all dearly.
So now modern technology plays a massive part of our lives I have a lot to thank twitter for too. I only discovered it 12 months ago, and I can safely say I have made some amazingly lovely friends.
@The Mummy Life
@Lincoln and Me
@Beach Bum Beauty
and the coolest gang of ladies i know
@Nik of oz
@lauras little bakery
(To name just a few)
My special Twitter mates, the ones I can shout when I need them, the ones I really can’t wait to meet.
So it seems that I spend most of my time chatting to friends is online, by text or a snatched phone call to say I’m on my way.
Does this make me sad, that I only talk to my friend’s online or even by text?
Does this make me a bad friend?
Lots of love
